Network Security

Beyond the core cabling, PCs, servers and switches, the most important part of a good, functional infrastructure is the security of the equipment.

We can help you understand the what’s needed to ensure that your system is not only secure, but effective in protecting itself from malicious actions.

If you need advice on or help securing your systems, get in touch and we’ll do our very best to help tailor a solution suitable for your organisation’s needs.

Unified Threat Management

Unified Threat Management or UTM is the way to protect your network from a single solution.

Our experience with Unified Threat Management started in 2001 when we partnered with Astaro to bring their Security Linux advanced firewall solution to the UK. This product evolved into the Astaro Security Gateway (ASG). Astaro was then acquired by Sophos, one of the world’s leading security vendors, in 2011. From this point the product developed further with Sophos’ backing into the current Sophos UTM portfolio of products. We continue to work with Sophos as a Gold Partner with Certified Engineers.

UTM provides not only a secure, next-generation firewall, but also the ability to:

  • Filter and monitor web traffic as well as applying traffic controls within your organisation
  • Protect email traffic from spam, viruses and malware;
  • Give secure remote access and virtual private networks (VPNs) to your homeworking and on the move staff and remote offices;
  • Protect web servers from attacks;
  • Provide secure, managed wireless networks simply and effectively;
  • View comprehensive logs and reports in easy to understand formats.

Contact us for more information, we’re happy to help advise on the right security for your organisation.

Anti-virus and Anti-malware

Most people have heard of computer viruses, many have heard of anti-virus software… But did you know there are more threats to the computer than just viruses? Did you also know that users of MacOS and Linux are still vulnerable?

Malware is short for ‘malicious software’, it encompasses viruses as well as worms, spyware and Trojan horses.

We can help with not only helping you find the right security solutions for your organisation, but also assist in dealing with virus and malware clean-ups and assessments of your current protection.

Secure Connectivity

As we progress in the ways of out-of-office working, organisations find they need to be able to have staff work on the move, out on site on even at home.

We can help you find the right solution for your staff to remote work securely and still be able to have all the normal productivity they would have in the office.
